The last fortnight has been a busy one with one thing or another, but somehow I have managed to get a few orders out the door (or made and waiting to be delivered!)
Firstly I made two circle Name Banners in pink for two newborn baby girls:
These were made for friends of mine, they said they were looking for a Name Banner for a girl and the first words out of my mouth were "please don’t say pink hearts…"
So they opted for pink circles instead! I really like these (although if I had a girl I would opt for the pink hearts too). I still think these are a fantastic newborn/christening gift for babies, these were £14 each and are unique and hopefully not too babyish.
Of course, another friend of mine placed an order for the pink hearts.
Up next is the boy stuff, I do get orders for boys — honest! These are for the lovely Angela over at Gala Cottage. You should check out her site, the things she makes are unique, my personal favourite is the Saltire cushion and I am trying to figure out what room in my house that is going to work in (re-decoration may be in order…)
All in blue, red and white and all lovely!
I do have a few other bits and pieces that were dispatched, but I will save them for another post. I need to get cracking on a post about a new product I made about three months ago and only just remembered I hadn’t posted about it.
I opened my lovely package from Fabric Rehab as well, I am in love with the beautiful fabric I have been sent. Need inspiration on what to make it into though, although I have a tiny idea right at the back of my mind just waiting to grow…
An example of my Strawberry Hair Clasp Holder.
Each pocket measures 9cm square and has a ribbon looped at the top so that they can be hung from bedposts, door handles or hooks.
These cost £4.50 and postage of these cost 70p.
if you would like to place an order for these please email me on email@example.com.
For a little change I have decided that rather than just posting one big long post with lots of different pictures, I would have a theme week showcasing one product a week, detailing the different styles and colours available. And this week is the Hair Clasp Holder week!
First of all I have my gang of "originals" — the girls who helped start Gift Butterfly and were my very first products. Made from felt and ribbon, the hair clasp holders have a pocket for hair bobbles, a long ribbon for storing your hair clasps and the new versions have a loop at the bottom to store headbands.
Each pocket measures 9cm square and has a ribbon looped at the top so that they can be hung from bedposts, door handles or hooks. The cupcake and heart designs can be personalised with an initial for an additional charge.
These cost £4.50 each, personalisation is an additional 50p and postage of these cost 70p.
As usual, if you would like to place an order for these please email me on firstname.lastname@example.org.
